Hi all,

 

I just applied, and was approved for, a Chase Freedom card! Problem is, I also want the Chase Sapphire Preferred. I don't want to go "app-crazy" especially since both cards are from Chase. I'm wondering how long I should wait to apply. I'm happy to sit in the garden for awhile and use my cards responsibly - this is the last card on my wish list so I want to make sure I do the right things to get it.

 

My other cards and limits are as follows:

 

Chase Freedom, juuuuuust opened - $17,000

AmEx Blue Cash Preferred, opened one year ago - $18,000

Victoria's Secret - $1,300

J. Crew - $2,170

Express - $1,380

The Limited - $1,400

CareCredit - $4,100

 

EQ FICO - 701 as of 5/23

TU score - 826 as of 5/23 (from transunion.com, not sure if that's FICO or?)

EXP VantageScore - 746 as of 5/23

 

AAoA - 5 years

 

Thanks for your input!

 


I got mine after 9 months with the Freedom. At 5 months, I got auto-cli from them on my Freedom. 

 

With your profile, I think you can GET IT NOW!.


I agree! I think that with the OP's credentials there's a very good chance at approval now.

 

Edit: Sorry I just read through the whole thread and I see there was an approval after all......CONGRATS good lord thats a sweet CL!!!

Current Score: TU 671 / EQ 675 / EX 682

AFAIK they won't for 13 months.

 

Anyway, OP: mucho congratulations!

 

I'd be over the moon personally with that sort of approval; or at least in my case, getting into likely my very best bottle of scotch in the cabinent at the time for a mini-celebration.

Re: Just got Freedom, but want Sapphire Preferred - when?

@djc1puno - Not to sound stupid, but I'm pretty new to paying any attention at all to my credit reports.

How do I find out if they used the same pull?

Do I need to order a credit report, and if so, how do I know which bureau they pulled?

I'd like to know the answer myself!
